COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Huckleberry Wheat is bear food in a bottle! Most other fruit beers have such a tart snap that you can't taste the beer. The Huckle-Weizen is BEER with just enough huckleberry to make you yearn for the wilderness!

Bottle: Dirty straw or a dull golden, fairly hazy, moderate to large white head, foamy, fairly decent lacing.   Fairly crisp huckleberry nose.   Whoa... this one is rather tart and dry, with only minor huckleberry sweetness.   Actually, its kinda of nice for a change.   Fairly dry, a bit airy, and acidic from start to finish.   Slight pepper, wheat, and cereal at the end.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Different.   Thanks Tom for the bottle!

Braudog (5939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle: Poured with one of the biggest heads Iíve ever seen ... at first pour, 100% of the glass was tightly-packed foam. After about 4 minutes, it finally settled into a airy topcover of a bright hazy body. The aroma gave off a light sense of wildberry. Smooth on the palate, this was primarily sweet, almost candy-tart. This is almost like a raspberry lemonade with 5% alcohol. Pretty good if you want a fruity one.

Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Re-rate - (11/16/07) picked up a single 12-oz bottle from the brewery in Billings, Montana. Pours a semi-clear golden blond brew with a creamy white head that dissolves slowly to a film top and white ring. Some spotty lacing but quite thick in the glass. Aroma of light white bread with a soothing huckleberry scent. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a mild tart huckleberry, wheat and a touch flowery hops. Finish is smooth, light with a distinct huckleberry aftertaste. I have had several huckleberry fruit beers in Montana over the past year. This is one of the best huckleberry flavored beverages.

First rating (10/14/07)- infected bottle.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Cloudy pale yellow with perhaps a touch of pink -look kind of like a fuzzy peach. Quickly diminishing head. Very fruity aroma - apple, apricot. huckleberry? Thankoodness the flavor isnít quite as sticky sweet as the aroma. Berry sweetness with some wheat malt sweetness in the background. Slight acidic finish helps clear some of the sweetness away. Not bad for a fruit beer.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2009
12oz bottle. Murky orange-brown color. Sweet berry aroma, potentially artificial but quite pleasant nonetheless. Juicy, tangy citrus hits you right off the bat, and dominates the beer throughout. Tart and refreshing, I sort of like this beer. The huckleberry taste is not unlike tart raspberry, with more of a lemony kick. Light honey touch in the finish. I could drink this stuff all day.

JK (4750) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Not bad. Cloudy orange and lightly carbonated. I donít know what a huckleberry tastes like but the flavor of this beer is very similar to Pyramid apricot. Mostly sweet, but some sour in the finish. There does not seem to be any artificial flavors so that is good.

The berries donít make this too offensive. Golden pour. Average carbonation. Sour finish. Bottle thanks to Travlr.

badgerben (4535) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Golden color with a thin white head. Very flowery aroma with a strong herbal quality. Slight fruits which I presume to be huckleberries, but Iíve never had one so Iím not really sure. The taste has a bit of wheat on it, but is really about the same as the aroma. Not outstanding, but pretty tasty.

ChainGangGuy (4452) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Appearance: Pours a pale golden body with a small, fizzy-looking white head. Smell: Boom. There you go. Huckleberries. Taste: This beer offers enough of the fruity, juicy huckleberry quality we all seek without getting excessive about it. Beyond that, thereís just a soft hint of wheat and lemon. Finishes crisp and tart. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Finally, a beer that allows me to get my huckleberry "fix".
